Looking for a recessed gas meter box?

With more than 40 years of experience in the industry, at MeterBoxesDirect we manufacture and provide GRP meter boxes and spare parts.

You’ll find three types of gas meter boxes. Firstly, let’s have a look at them:

 

The difference between surface mounted, recessed and semi-submerged gas meter boxes

  • Recessed Gas Meter Box

In this type of installation the meter box is installed within a cavity wall of a building or a pillar enclosure. You’ll have it directly into the wall, the meter box won’t protrude nor cause any obstructions.

  • Surface Mounted Gas Meter Box

In some configurations such as older buildings without cavity wall, you’ll have to install a meter box which protrude a bit out of the wall (approximately 250mm), this is a surface mounted installation. For this you must be careful to place your meter box in an area that won’t cause obstruction, or where it can’t be easily damaged.

  • Semi-submerged Gas Meter Box

This type of meter box installation is specific and might not be suitable for all types of property. A semi-concealed or semi-submerged meter box must be installed against an outer wall of a building while also being partially concealed in the ground.
